Electic Thank You

Hello there! The card I'm sharing today started with a small, puffy glitter heart. I found it on a sidewalk or parking lot, not really sure anymore. :-) In my mind, I said, "You're coming home with me," and stuffed it in my pocket.


When I got back to the craft room, I started to gather various bits and pieces that were already on my desk, arranging things to see what looked best. The heart was literally the cherry on top, the very last thing I placed on here.


The sentiment-in-tag was also already lying on my desk.  Some time ago, I had stamped several of these (from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Home) and spritzed the heck out of them with assorted colors of Distress Ink Sprays. I knew each would find a home in time.

I think sequins make nearly everything look better, so I added pretty sparkling clear and gold ones from Pretty Pink Posh. My eldest daughter, who adores all things shiny and sparkly, would agree. :-)

Thank you so much for coming by today!
